A Pharmacy Premises is a location where medicinal drugs are dispensed and sold.

General Pharmaceutical Council Registration of Pharmacy Premises:

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) maintains a register of Pharmacy Premises if the principal activity at the premises is the retail sale or supply of Pharmacy (P) medicines and / or Prescription Only Medicines (POMs). They are not primarily concerned with NHS Prescriptions.

Once a Pharmacy Premises is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council it is allocated a registration number which uniquely identifies each registered Pharmacy Premises. This registration number is a 7 digit number starting with the number 1.

All Pharmacy Premises that are currently registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council are listed on the General Pharmaceutical Council Register.

For further information on General Pharmaceutical Council Pharmacy Premises registration, see the General Pharmaceutical Council website.

Organisation Data Service (ODS) Codes:

To be able to dispense NHS Prescriptions, the Pharmacy Premises requires an Organisation Data Service  code in addition to the General Pharmaceutical Council  registration number.

The Organisation Data Service allocates the following codes:

  • Pharmacy

  • Pharmacy HQ.
